Leicester should be frying us like a packet of chipotles
He's been a left back almost all the way through the academy, but played a few matches on the right the season before last for the under 18's. He played at centre back once or twice too. Solskjaer said in January that right might suit him more for his attacking play.Williams is rightfooted. He's a rightback who we played on the left for a bit.
But he IS rusted and haven't had anywhere near enough gametime to get consistency.
Nevertheless, he should be marginally better.
However his first team performances at LB have always outshone his RB performances. I cant remember a single good performance at RB.He never looked totally comfortable at LB to me. He was moved to LB for the U23s to accommodate Laird iirc.
He's a RB, he's just playing like someone who hasn't played a game all season.
The other thing I’d consider is getting Pogba on in the double pivot, as can play those balls that Elanga is apparently making runs for off screen. You can then move Donny forward and take Mata off.The lads have grown into the game. They have been Leicester’s equal, but both teams below standard. Game there to be won.
Need Greenwood to give us another 15 minutes second half, before we can switch him for Cavani. Leicester will need to push for three points, so Rashford needs to come on to counter too after a while. I’d probably do Bruno for Mata at HT first though.
It’s a huge leap from the stiffs to first team. He’d need 6 games at least to get the pace. But I think he’s done really wellWeird, I see lots of runs Amad makes but we seem intent on pursuing the left flank, perhaps because Williams is shite in playing the ball out.
I actually think Elanga struggled in taking on players.
Yeah, Matic has been the best player on the pitch.Stop saying Matic legs are gone. He's still very good midfielder and doesn't look out of place in this game.
Van de Beek I like in midfield too, he is calm and doesn't shy away from the ball. Better when more involved.
